  1. Moses scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    So here's the moment when I have to withdraw. As a non-smoker, I'm wrong here. But I try to be neutral. He really deserves that, or rather Bruichladdich! The PLV is a shock.
    • Nose
      Very clearly and unmistakably "the Bruichladdich". Without ifs and buts, all the nouns that make it up. Intense notes during a barbecue on the beach near the distillery. Well done. Respect. Only the PLV doesn't fit me at all. But it was clear, sorry :(
    • Taste
      Too little body for me but everything is wonderfully balanced with lemongrass and peat and sweet malt. Smoke with peppery notes. Basically solid. Just way too thin.
    • Finish
      Medium to longer, but only because of the salty peat notes with longer smoke behind the spicy note, it can hold out longer. Almost too short for the price.

    A typical Bruichladdich?
    I refer to that smell of vomit, that sour note that I would like to know where it came from.

    But I love Bruichladdich.
    I don't care.
    There is something to discover.
    Spicy notes in the background, also cereals and a flowery smell.
    The wood itself and the smoke hold back elegantly.

    Peat then comes in the mouth.
    An oily, spicy liquid, bitter wood.
    The finish is quite long, the smoke remains.

    A malt for the rather cool season ...

    • Nose
      Heavy peaty sweetness. In the background notes of salt, rose soap and juniper. In addition, oak, citrus zests, apple crates and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Soft and medium heavy, with tender-salty peat, smoked malt and nutty notes. Will be a little soapy and dry.
    • Finish
      Medium length, salted nuts, malt and peat smoke.

    Nice peaty meaty islay dram. Next to the meat there is a fair amount of pear and vanilla to discover

    This malt, according to Jim McEwan's statement, is a blend of Bruichladdichs, Port Charlottes, and Octomores. The Octomore is for me - clearly recognizable by the myrtle and fern note. An untamed malt. Certainly interesting, although the plastic taste is a bit scary to me to be an all-day dram.
    • Nose
      Significantly dry peat smoke at the beginning of the nose. Amazingly fast then joins a very nice sweet vanilla note. The alcohol is well integrated and has a refreshing effect on the nose (menthol). Then it becomes floral (myrtle and fern) and behind it a little bit the wood.
    • Taste
      Cold ash that has been extinguished with freshly squeezed lemon juice. A little vanilla, but not nearly as sweet as the nose suggests. Young and strong on the tongue. He is still very young ... in the middle of the Sturm und Drang Zeit. Then follows a distinct bitterness. Slightly metallic and a clear plastic note. With white pepper.
    • Finish
      A long finish. Dry smoke, vanilla and spices remain in the mouth. The bitterness is still there.

  7. 11insomnium scored this whisky 73 points Expert Junior

    Nosing: Soft, delicate smoke, sweetish, slightly fruity

    Tasting: peat, some charcoal

    With water: a bit more fruity

    Comment: Overall, one-dimensional

    Have had some good Bruichladdich, but this one ends up very bitter and rather unbalanced.
